Been having problems, need help with "important" log entries, Fedora 21


If I'm loading down the system, i.e., running transmission while playing a video, periodically network throughput drops, video stops, cpu activity jumps up, then after a few seconds to a minute suddenly cpu activity goes back to normal, networking and video resumes. In addition I have this "important" message in the log viewer:

Quote:
systemd-udevd
Error calling EVIOCSKEYCODE on device node '/dev/input/event2' (scan code 0xc0183, key code 226): Invalid argument
There are several lines with varying scan and key codes, the rest being the same.

In addition, a couple weeks ago, I had locked myself out of the system, (boot to black screen), due to a failed attempt at installing the latest AMD/ATI proprietary drivers. Thanks to the help of several people on the forum, I was able to get back in, using the native drivers.


Obviously as a newbie to Linux I don't know if any of these things are related.

I would appreciate any help anyone could give me, TIA!!

I'm not sure what's causing the high CPU usage.

You could run Memtest to make sure the RAM isn't bad.
http://www.memtest.org/

Try looking in the dmesg log and see if there are any Warnings, Errors.
If your not sure post the dmesg log and someone can read through it for you.
To run dmesg just open your terminal and run dmesg.

How old is your pc?

OK, THANKS!! I shall do this, and get back here with the results.

Some of my PC hardware, while older as to manufacture, is brand new, i.e., the MB, MEM and HD's, within a couple months. The CPU I bought used at that same time. The video card is about 2-3 years old. The monitor is about 5-6 years old. The IR mouse & keyboard combo, case and PS are 6-7 years old. and that's pretty much the system, except for removable devices.

Somehow I left off the initial post what's written below.
=========================================================
It's a dual boot system with Windows pro x64 as the alternate OS. In windows the computer works fast and flawlessly.
